AXMIN INC. Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement Offering and Grant of Stock Options
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 13, 2022) - AXMIN Inc. (TSXV: AXM) ("AXMIN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of common shares of the Company at C$0.03 per share, up to approximately C$250,000 (the "Offering").
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for the Company's working capital and general corporate purposes and funds will not primarily be used to pay management fees or for Investor Relations Activities.
The Offering is expected to close on or about May 27, 2022. Closing of the Offering is conditional upon receipt of all required approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day from the closing date of the Offering in accordance with applicable securities laws.
Certain officers and directors of the Company are expected to subscribe under the Offering on the same terms as arm's length investors. The participation of such directors and officers in the Offering will constitute a "related party transaction" for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company will be exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the Offering in reliance on sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities that will be issued to directors and officers of the Company nor the fair market value of the consideration for the securities that will be issued to directors and officers of the Company will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company will not able to file a material change report containing all of the disclosure required by MI 61-101 more than 21 days before the expected closing date of the Offering as the aforementioned insider participation has not been confirmed and the Company wishes to close the Offering as expeditiously as possible.
